Clark Gable Memorabilia

Doris Day once said of legend Clark Gable, “He was as masculine as any man I’ve ever known, and as much a little boy as a grown man could be – it was this combination that had such a devastating effect on women.”

The looks, the attitude, the acting chops — Gable said of himself,

“I’m no actor and I never have been. What people see on the screen is me.”

“Gone With the Wind” Rhett Butler is of course  most remembered version of himself, then, among countless other roles spanning drama and comedy.

Circa 1940, the 14k watch was acquired from Gable’s personal estate. Check out the above photos of Gable wearing the watch in candid moments.

Frankly, my dear, Gable did give a damn when it came to watches, as this Rolex marked his impeccable debonair taste.

We sold this ‘‘Mutiny on the Bounty” script for $11,858.

It’s signed by more than 70 people involved with the film’s production, including, of course, Gable.
